CALLING ARTISTS: We're looking for fine artists with London themed artwork

Dark Yellow Dot supports artists at the beginning of their career, often by providing opportunities to display real art in real spaces. We’re seeking emerging artists with a strong personal vision and innovative approach to art making for our upcoming group exhibition “DIRTY LONDON”

We’re looking for London based artists to display selected “London themed” artwork, which will be on exhibition at the Genesis Cinema Gallery Space in East London in April/May

The Genesis Cinema has been offering entertainment in London's East End since 1848. With a rich and jam packed history, it had once housed performances by Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, and Barbra Windsor to name a few. Now it's a bustling independent cinema with an ambient cafe and cocktail bar and is known for showcasing local artists in its popular gallery space.

Both the artist and the artwork must be in London to be considered, as both Dark Yellow Dot and Genesis prides itself on promoting local arts and culture.
